How does our bereavement clearance service work?


We understand that having the house of a loved one cleared after their death can be an emotional and painful experience.

Our team will work with you to keep the experience as stress-free as possible, providing a discreet and reliable service.

Our Bereavement Clearance team will start at a time that is convenient for you and we won’t stop until you are satisfied.


During the clearance, we can put aside items that you wish to keep, or items we feel may be important or have sentimental value, such as photographs or legal paperwork. We are a friendly and reliable team, and we take a lot of pride in the personal service that we offer our customers.

We never forget that during a bereavement house clearance we are dealing with someone else’s loss. Our team are always respectful that the possessions they are handling could hold sentimental value and emotional memories and that the process of seeing a loved one’s house emptied after their death can be very upsetting.

You can rest assured that we will always deal with every bereavement clearance with the respect and professionalism that it deserves.

House clearance cleaning services


Once the contents of a property have been cleared the house will usually need to be cleaned throughout ready for selling or for its next occupants.

If you require help deep cleansing the property, then we also offer a cost-effective thorough and professional cleaning service.

Our cleaning service can be customised to suit your requirements and budget with either basic or comprehensive services available.

Whichever option you choose, we will clean the property from top to bottom, ensuring that it is in the best possible condition by the time we leave.

Trauma cleaning services

In some cases, if a body wasn’t found very quickly or if bodily fluids were involved, a standard cleaning service is not sufficient.

In these instances, the property could be contaminated with hazardous fluids and bacteria and a professional trauma cleaning service will be required.

Here at A1 Nationwide House Clearances, our team of experts are trained in dealing with hazardous conditions and biocontamination.

Our trauma cleaning service deep cleanses the property discreetly, professionally, and safely, disposing of any soiled items in a way that adheres to health and safety regulations.

Once our team have finished cleaning the property it will be safe, sanitised, and free from contamination.

We can buy

If you wish to sell any of the items being cleared from the property then we offer a free valuation service and are willing to buy the items from you and offset their value against the price of the house clearance.

Selling items to us is a quick and convenient way of dealing with the possessions without having to involve another business or pay to move or store the items.

Just some of the items that we will consider buying from you include:

  • Furniture

  • White goods

  • Books

  • Ornaments

  • Bric-a-brac

  • Fixtures and fittings

  • Antiques

  • Jewellery

  • Art

  • Power tools

  • Bicycles

We always offer fair market value for significant items. Selling unwanted items from the house clearance to our team is an excellent way of bringing down the cost of or paying for our bereavement house clearance service.

Environment Agency licensed upper-tier waste carrier


When disposing of waste during a house clearance it is very important to make sure that the company you use is fully licensed and insured to dispose of waste.

Unscrupulous, unlicensed businesses or individuals may dispose of your waste illegally by fly-tipping it. It is your responsibility to ensure that the waste from any house clearance you arrange is being disposed of responsibly and failure to do so could leave you liable for a £5,000 fine.

Here at A1 Nationwide House Clearances, we are a fully licensed Environment Agency upper-tier waste carrier.

Always ask any organisation that you use to dispose of waste to show you their licence. The Licence will look similar to a UK drivers’ licence, not a piece of paper!
